Trouble with Monday
Tuesday, August 05, 2014
I am going to try and put into words what the hell happened to me yesterday. The day began on a high note. I met all my daily goals the day before and woke up feeling rested and strong. I packed my gym bag with my fancy new lady clothes for after work. That was a personal NSV! My time at the gym was energizing, clarifying and challenging. I loved every minute of it! On the way home, I decided to stop and pick up a bottle of wine. Why not? I can afford a glass after that crazy workout! I got home, cuddled with the cutest dog EVAH, and took a nice cool shower.
Everything sounds like paradise, right? This is where the soundtrack changes and you know Darth Vader is in the offing…
I poured myself a nice glass of wine, and sat down at the computer to check emails and SP.
Mistake #1: wine on an empty stomach
Mistake #2: wine on an empty stomach in front of the computer
Mistake #3: munchies
CONFOUNDED! This is starting to get on my nerves, people!
The momentum of this wonderful day, dissolved into a hot mess of red wine and dark chocolate cherry cordials. Hell, the Mets didn't even win. I went to bed feeling sick to my stomach, thoroughly angry at myself.
But there is a silver lining to that cloud of despair. I weighed in this morning and that persistent number that has not moved in weeks went down one pound! After all that drama, I looked at myself in the mirror and promised to love myself in spite of my setbacks. I am not one to give my scale a whole lot of power, but today it reminded me that my good days outweigh my bad, and my successes far outweigh my failures. Yay me!
